Abstract: Originally, Therese et Isabelle has not been designed by Violette Leduc indepen- dently. The text was the first part of an autobiographical novel, Ravages, who was published by Gallimard in 1954. However the episode "Therese and Isabelle" does not appear in the novel, the editor will cut into a hundred-fifty pages, considered at the time as unprintable as too bold, at least from the pen of a woman. We will have to wait until the year 2000 that was finally published the full version of Therese and Isabelle. How Leduc it deals with sexuality and female desire by combining a precise description of gestures and feelings, metaphors and highly poetic images defy taboos of the time. Throughout our study, we will have the opportunity to discover a particular poetic; Leduc says the desire, the pleasure in a pure state, without resorting to preconceived images of women and draw a new picture of the woman.
A l origine, Therese et Isabelle n avait pas ete conçu par Violette Leduc de maniere autonome. Le texte constituait la premiere partie d un roman autobiogra- phique, Ravages, publie par Gallimard en 1954. Pourtant, l episode " Therese et Isabelle " ne figurera pas dans le roman, l editeur en amputera une cent-cinquantaine de pages, considerees a l epoque comme impubliables car trop audacieuses, du moins sous la plume d une femme. Il faudra donc attendre l annee 2000 pour que soit finalement publiee la version complete de Therese et Isabelle. La maniere dont Leduc y aborde la sexualite et le desir feminins en associant a la description precise des gestes et des sensations, des metaphores et des images eminemment poetiques, defie les tabous du moment. Tout au long de notre etude, nous aurons l occasion de decouvrir une poe- tique particuliere ; Leduc dit le desir, le plaisir a l etat pur, sans recourir aux images preconçues du feminin et dessine un tableau nouveau de la femme.
